Beware of "Google Email International Lottery 2017" Scams

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are winners in the "Google Email International Lottery 2017," is a lottery scam. The lottery scam was created by scammers to trick the recipients into sending their personal information and money, by claiming that they are the winners of a Google lottery. But, there is no such Google lottery, and Google will never ask online users to send their personal information via an email message or ask them to send money in order to receive their prizes.

Please continue reading below.

This type of lottery scam will ask potential victims their personal information and subsequently, ask them to send money in order to receive their prizes. But, please do not respond to the email message or follow the instructions in it. Google is not taking part in or endorsing any lottery games, so if you receive an email claiming that you have won some lottery prize endorsed by Google, it is a scam.
